Chewy

SUPERCHILL THERAPY DOG

Chewy has been a therapy dog since 2014 at the young age of 18 months. That is when he finally settled down and stopped destroying almost everything that came across his path. We believe he is a black Lab/Husky/Rottweiler mix. He is an extremely loving and slothful (better than calling him lazy?) dog that likes to lie on your feet and go right into REM sleep.

He enjoys swimming, sleeping on his back with his legs up, laying around while the other dogs fetch, wrestling with his buddy Ani, chewing on bones, shedding on everything (lint roller provided at no extra cost), and giving kisses to his favorite people.

Kenai.jpg

Kenai Zucchini

THERAPY DOG IN TRANING

Kenai aspires to be as chill a therapy dog as Chewy, but he is still just a puppy in training. His name means "black bear" and as a Newfoundland/Poodle mix, he may well end up looking like one. Kenai loves everyone who will love him back. He is bound to melt your heart with his raggedy shaggy mop and precious goofy stare. Kenai helps patients feel like coming to their appointments every day, just to get his sweet puppy love!

Millie's unique beauty and natural silver mohawk make almost everyone smile.
